Akhlys Cover240407

I dream of a burning cord,
That binds my heart to this maze,
Of discard & pain & discord,
Let me feel the Asterion’s gaze” (‘Through the Abyssal Door‘)

Following up 2020’s highly acclaimed “Melinoë,” US Black Metal band AKHLYS present their latest work of abyssal Black Metal terror. “House of the Black Geminus” features six intricate compositions, further refining and evolving the inimitable nightmarish sound that mastermind Naas Alcameth (AORATOSNIGHTBRINGER) is renowned for.

The album is officially released via Debemur Morti Productions and can be listened to directly on Bandcamp or the label’s YouTube channel:

House of the Black Geminus” is another masterpiece of subterranean craft which has received high praise from the metal press and fans alike:

The monumental dynamic sound gives this Black Metal vision almost apocalyptic dimensions. Highly recommended!” (Scream Mag)

This album combines uncompromisingly hard riffs with mesmerizing melodies, incredibly intense blast beats with an icy industrial feel, and hysterically hypnotic vocals with true Ambient passages – awesome, truly awesome!” (Legacy Mag)

If you revel in dissonance, extremity and bombardments of true evil; then this record is definitely for you!” (Nattskog)

This album represents a bold and innovative effort from a band that is clearly comfortable with making us uncomfortable.” (Metal Epidemic)

House of the Black Geminus” is available on CD, vinyl, tape and digital via DMP’s EUUS and Bandcamp shops. Various merch designs accompany the album.

Akhlys Tour140706

AKHLYS was formed 2009 by Naas Alcameth (NIGHTBRINGERAORATOSBESTIA ARCANA) as a musical expression for the inexplicable visions, journeys and phenomena that occur in liminal lands between slumber and awakening. Initially exploring these concepts via Dark Ambient in debut “Supplication” (2009) and then haunting Black Metal through lauded follow-up “The Dreaming I” (2015), Alcameth has once again reified and rarefied this vision, giving rise to a third and crowning work, “Melinoë“, which was released in December 2020.

Earning widespread acclaim for their live performances, AKHLYS secured a partnership with Parasite Gallows Booking in 2022. Amidst numerous tours and festival appearances in Europe, Israel, Latin America and the United States, the recent years have also witnessed the crafting of new compositions destined for the band’s fourth album. Titled “House of the Black Geminus,” this much-anticipated release is released July 5th, 2024.
